Google rolls out September Android update for its Pixels
Traditionally Google releases its monthly Android update for still-supported Pixels on the first Monday of each month, with the only exceptions being when that Monday happens to be a holiday in the US. That was the case yesterday – Labor Day – which means the rollout was delayed by one day… until today.
So now Google is ready to give its Pixels the September Android security update. This has started rolling out today, but as usual with Google it may take many days (or even weeks) for the software to reach all of the devices that are out there in the wild.
The new build number is RQ3A.210905.001 for global Pixel 3, 3 XL, 3a, 3a XL, 4, 4 XL, 4a, 4a (5G), and 5 models, RD2A.210905.002 for the Pixel 5a in North America, and RD2A.210905.003 for the Pixel 5a in Japan.
Speaking of the Pixel 5a, this is its first ever software update. If you’re interested in Google’s latest smartphone, don’t miss our in-depth review of it, which was just published – it’s still fresh out of the oven.
